(vo) with award winning documentaries that take you inside the headlines, way inside. (vo) from the underworld, to the world of privilege. >> everyone in michael jackson's life was out to use him. (vo) no one brin
, go away. >> gregg: two of the more electrifying addresses, rand paul and marco rubio, and paul referred to the public party the g.o.p. of old has grown stale and lost cover. are these a couple of guys who intend to lead the party in a new direction? >> well, i think certainly rand paul does. i would say that marco rubio has a lot more in common with people rand paul are saying are moss covered than rand paul does. marco rubio has been strong on national defense and i think that's basically what this difference, what this argument is about. my colleague, bill kristol at the weekly standard has an editorial going back and revisiting that comment from rand paul and looking at the history of the republican party and its position on national defense. strength through-- peace through strength and going back and looking at the times when the country was war weary and there have been times in the past the country was war weary and when the united states lets down its guard there are often serious repercussions for having done so down the line. >> gregg: i think that's important to reme
, will be considered substantial. and will probably include some form of victory lap for marco rubio. it is the kind of thing that will continue to make the paul ryans the old -- as young as he is -- the old republican party, and rubio the new guard. >> exactly. for people that pay attention to the content of the policy, it will probably have some conservative ingredients as well. it is not like they have to walk away from the table saying they only co-signed what obama strictly wanted. i think that's the real question as we go into this period, which of the leaders see dividends in doing things and working across the aisle and while they don't do it very often, people like chris christie and marco rubio have shown there's a third way there. >> krystal, is it conceivable, one of the big stars on the bench of the republican party, jeb bush, many people say he is the savior, as soon as he makes the move we have somewhere to go, that he could spend a week with a new book about immigration that would have absolutely no effect on the republican dialogue about the subject? >> no effect and no positive imp
, we will persevere. >> on deck for later today, senators marco rubio and rand paul. texas governor rick perry and south carolina's newest senator, tim scott. back inside the beltway, president obama will return to the capitol for a third straight day of meetings. yesterday the president ventured into hostile territory, grilled by house republicans looking for an upper hand in the budget battles. >> i thought that we had a very frank and candid exchange of ideas. the president understands we've got long-term spending that we need to deal with. but he's going to hold hostage the fact that he wants to raise taxes on the american people. >> again, if the president wants to let our unwillingness to raise taxes get in the way, then we're not going to be able to set differences aside and focus on what we agree on. >> so with -- obama himself down played the outreach during remarks last night to his policy armoring for ak action. >> the press in washington has been reporting about obama's charm offensive. all i've been doing is calling up folks and trying to see if we can breakthrough some
interest, because he is looking for the long term against marco rubio and rand paul who are hot right now, and jeb bush has great name recognition and may not do well here but later on and if he decides to jump in and bring in more money to the campaign. >> and isn't this a straw poll that is meaningless, because rand paul has won several times. >> well, this is the first opportunity for people who are running for 2016 to get their name out for potential activists to jump on board or campaign donors the look at them. it is a straw poll to see who should we be looking at down the road. >> and chip, yesterday, we got some mixed messages about the two conservatives of 2016 buzz, and litet's take a listen to the clips. >> the gop of old has grown stale and moss covered. now, i don't think that we need to name any names. >> we don't need a new idea. there is an idea, and the idea is called america, and it still work works. >> so on the one hand you have paul saying that the party is stale and moss cover and rubio saying, no everything is working and we don't need to make any changes, and the d
of marriage that i've had for over 26 years. >> and this comes right after marco rubio took a very hard line. let's see marco rubio at cpac yesterday. >> i respect people that disagree with me on certain things. but they have to respect me, too. just because i believe that states should have the right to define marriage in the traditional way does not make me a bigot. >> sam portman's son has tweeted today, i'm especially proud of my dad today. and we did see chris cillizza, in the nbc news/"wall street journal" poll that for the first time, 51% of those polled were in favor of gay marriage. we've seen a large number of well-known republicans signing on to that amicus brief. in support of the challenge to prop 8 which will be argued in a couple of weeks. but among republicans there's a very different, different posture in our polling. republicans are still very much against it. >> you know, andrea, the thing i compare to, and i would say i compare to this issue, prenewtown and pre-aurora. but i compare it to democrats and guns in the sort of mid 1990s up until about 2011. which is there is s
younger members of the republican party and here i will speak directly about marco rubio who are defending or against marriage equality, and he said as much at cpac. how did the crowd respond to that. what was the discussion after his espousal of traditional marriage, not for gay couples. >> it is interesting. marco rubio had more to do with his star power in the establishment than for people agreeing with him. rand paul got a bigger ovation and more energy in the crowd. i went to a panel after that about next generation of the republican party and they talked about rand paul, not about marco rubio, and talked about room in the party to disagree. if you poll people here, you are going to get an opinion different from maybe the actual republican national convention. this is the next generation. i want to add i don't think it is necessarily sad this is what it took portman to change his mind. i am a supporter of marriage equality, i'll take what i can get. glad he is on my side. >> a lot of people agree. quickly, ari, marco rubio may sacrifice basic civil rights, but at least he can quote ja
rubio, kelly ayotte, rand paul, among a few of the big-name speakers to talk about it in depth was donald trump. take a listen. >> the 11 million illegals, even if given the right to vote you know, your going to have to do what's right, but the fact is 11 million people will be voting democratic. you can be out front, you can be the spear head, you can do whatever you want to do but every one of those 11 million people will be voting democratic, just wait it works. >> that the way it works, bill richardson? >> no. i don't know why donald trump gets so much coverage because he makes no sense. the best statistic us in a presidential race are around 65 to 70% does go to the presidential candidate. george bush, western he was elected, got 44% that's wrong. i think hispanics are, for instance you not like an afro-american vote, they vote in a block. and you have to some conservative hispanics, cuban-americans, others. i think the hispanic vote, yeah, is decidedly democratic, but to say that you're gonna get 11 million democratic votes is ludicrous. i think what's happening is the mo
florida senator marco rubio is talking about this morning. responding to the move by the administration to close the white house for tours saying there were other areas other ways it could have been cut and this is just for publicity. >> this sequester they are going to look for the most painful cuts from a publicity perspective in order to drive home the point this is a bad idea. there are going to be spending reductions ear here or there. i think people watching this program who have had reductions of 10, 15, 20 percent in the household budget some people lost everything. they would be shocked to hear a bunch of politicians belly aching about a 2, 3 percent reduction. people have seen massive reductions in their own home budgets and businesses and so forth. this is just the beginning. you are going to continue every single day. you are going to see the best known national parks close down airports being targeted. they are going to try to make this as painful as possible because they are trying to make a political point. >> rubio saying you have to lead by example and the president had
where marco rubio is clowning around. >> there's this couple that i know. they are on my son's tackle football team. they are struggling. they live in a little small apartment, they share one car. they are not free dloaders. they are not liberals. >> and please direct your attention to the ring on my left. who new congressman louie gomert was an acrobat. hold on to your seats as he takes a daring leap off of reason. >> one of the things that we've heard over and over again since vietnam is, well, we don't want to get in another unwinnable war like vietnam. vietnam was winnable but people in washington decided we would not win it. >> the crowd loves it. and over on my right, it's the tax man himself, grover norquist. who knew he was also an animal trainer? >> republican elected officials who vote for tax increases are rat heads in a coat closet. they damage the brand for everybody else. >> wow. that is a circus act we've never heard before. got to hand it to the gop. they are flying through the air without a net. joining me now, our "politicsnation" correspondents. thank you for being
and personal sphere. >> reporter: florida senator marco rubio tailored his message to addressing the everyday concerns of middle-class americans. >> our people have not changed. the vast majority of the american people are hard-working taxpayers who take responsibility for their families, go to work everyday, they pay their mortgage on time, they volunteer in the community. this is what the vast majority of the american people still are. >> reporter: those not invited to speak illustrated the divisions in conservative ranks between tea party adherents and traditionalists. new jersey governor chris christie was excluded after he praised president obama's handling of superstorm sandy last fall. and then, criticized congressional republicans for blocking emergency disaster funding. also snubbed was virginia governor bob mcdonnell, who is raising taxes to pay for a transportation plan in his state. all of which leaves conservatives facing a key question: how to unify behind a central message that moves the republican party forward? veteran republican pollster whit ayres says it will take more tha
what is done and manipulated. >> eric: with mia love, ted cruz, marco rubio, scott, on down the line, i think young people will realize republicans don't care about the color of the skin. >> dana: however, i was just thinking in some ways, you could take a fight for gay marriage. if you look at somebody like ellen degeneres who decided she was going to be courageous and she did the coming out on the sitcom and then she has continued to talk about it and push that issue. she learned to talk about the garden variety topic. how do you help us on gay marriage? it's elephant in the room. they are black. they are hispanic. the two gentlemen so far, rubio, cruz. everybody, they have a story. if you pick the story up in the morning it will refer to them being hispanic or black. they just take it on rather than ignoring it to say all right, i'll elbrake it or -- embrace it. conservative side. no up with wants to talk about it and we end losing. >> eric: i hate to -- >> bob: i hate to give advice to republicans and conservatives. they won't take it. but something to think about, because the repub
